Cover Cropping, Twin-Row Strip-Till Continue to Rise

More than 50% of benchmark respondents utilize cover crops, while the percent of strip-tillers planting twin rows has more than doubled.
As strip-tillers search for efficient, economical ways to retain moisture and nutrients in their soils, an increasing number are turning to cover crops. Analysis of the 3rd Annual Strip-Till Operational Benchmark Study revealed another uptick in their use.

Blending Fertilizer into the Berm, Variable-Rate Application Increase

Anhydrous and zinc applications decline, while more farmers applied monoammonium phosphate (MAP) and urea with strip-till rigs in 2015.
Strip-tillers often cite targeted fertilizer placement as a key benefit of the practice, to ensure that plant roots can access nutrients throughout the growing season. But the 3rd Annual Strip-Till Operational Benchmark Study revealed some interesting changes in what type of fertilizer strip-tillers are applying and how.

Strip-Tilled Corn Acres, Soybean Yields Increase

The overall average of strip-tilled acres per farm grew by nearly 200, while average corn yields topped 190 and soybean yields jumped 4 bushels.
For the second year in a row, farmers increased the average number of acres they strip-tilled, despite a minor dip in the percentage of farm acreage strip-tilled.

2016 Strip-Till Operational Benchmark Study

Diversity of Methods Produce Strip-Till Stability and Flexibility

Increased adoption of cover crops and variable-rate fertilizing help strip-tillers maintain corn yields and increase soybean yields in 2015.
Building confidence in a strip-till system can come through a variety of avenues — utilizing cover crops to strengthen soils, refreshing fall-built strips with a spring pass to create an ideal seedbed, or variable-rate applying fertilizer with a strip-till rig for more efficient placement and usage of nutrients.

2015 Strip-Till Operational Benchmark Study: Cover Crop Use Spreads for Strip-Tillers

Strip-till corn populations remain consistent, while soybean seeding rates decline and use of twin-row systems increases.
Timing, width and depth are all considerations strip-tillers take into account when building berms on their farm for seeding, the 2nd annual Strip-Till Operational Benchmark Study found.
